Wizard of Earthsea (The Earthsea Cycle), A

Ursula K. Le Guin
Originally published in 1968, Ursula K. Le Guin’s A Wizard of Earthsea marks the first of the six now beloved Earthsea titles. Ged was the greatest sorcerer in Earthsea, but in his youth he was the reckless Sparrowhawk. In his hunger for power and knowledge, he tampered with long-held secrets and loosed a terrible shadow upon the world. This is the tumultuous tale of his testing, how he mastered the mighty words of power, tamed an ancient dragon, and crossed death's threshold to restore the balance.

I enjoy Le Guin's writing style so much! It's so simple and straightforward. I just want to read more and more. So far I've only read this and The Dispossessed. I can't wait to read more from Earthsea and, honestly, anything from her I can get my hands on.
